The Sensofar S Neox is a non-contact 3D optical profiler. It combines confocal, interferometry and focus variation into one sensorhead without any moving parts. A combination of a high-resolution CMOS sensor with high-resolution displays enables the S Neox to acquire sharp, vivid, realistic on-screen images that do not need to be re-scaled.
